and get a head start in to a year full of budget fights. >> right. especially an election and very critical of the other side's lack of diversity. valerie jarrett's leg was in night's photo. >> that's important. >> are we going to hear pushback on this nomination at all from the left? lew has less wall street -- fewer wall street ties than geithner an he was a coo at citigroup. he said during the 2010 crisis he didn't believe financial deregulation was a proximate cause of the crisis. will we see pushback from the left on this confirmation? >> we saw barney sanders of vermont say he's against the nomination but there's another problem, too. house republicans who are the only republicans in control in town really almost despise jack lew, do not see him as an honest broker and someone to work with and a story on politico tomorrow i'm working on puts a nail in the coffin on tax reform and republicans trying to jump start for a long time and problems practically with house republicans and negotiating budget deals, with jack lew. i mean, john boehner doesn't want him in the room negotia
. >> this is one that has taken a back burner. we are not that far removed from the election. the election was about by and large nothing more than the economy and which side could do it better. as a result almost every other issue gets pushed to the side, but we have, you know -- there are realtime tables in place in afghanistan about what we have pledged to do, what we will do. you talk about chuck hagel. what chuck hagel's role in all of that, if et wants to be secretary of defense. it's a complicated issue, and it's more complicated politically, andrea, simply because the american public -- this happened in iraq. it's clearly happening in afghanistan. the american public has tired of our involvement in these conflicts. this is not something new. this is something that has been long and coming. if you look at the history in polling at least of when that happens, public opinion almost never sort of sways back up to all of a sudden be supportive and think this was a battle worth fighting and those sorts of things. it's dangerous ground for any politician because of that. >> we are seeing
of the seven u.s. presidents re-elected since world war ii have been less popular in the second terms. so can the president use early momentum to push the policy agenda? let's spin. guys, i have been saying for a while now i think that his second term he's going the see a lot more pushback from the friends on the left than his foes on the right. for one, he's been re-elected. i think the gop has generally resigned themselves to the fact that they're going to be four more years to obama and they have a little less incentive to hang him for every misstep he has but democrats are incentives to watch him more carefully. one, payment, you know, a number of groups, unions for one, invested heavily in barack obama's re-election and i'm sure they want some roi now. two, accountability on the promises the president made in the first term, promises on gay marriage, promises on immigration, maybe promises on guns now. and third, this idea of a liberal legacy. think i that a number of folks on the left were willing to forego or ignore some of the issues in his first term that now they're looking at. the
champion in the years to come. to have some kind of revolution but when the next election for speaker happens to republican conference conservatives especiallespeciall y within the caucus will remember how cantor handled the fiscal cliff and that may help them. there were other high-profile republicans who voted it had interestiinteresti ng votes. paul wright in the house voted for it. marco rubio on the senate votes no on it. what he think the implications are about? >> guest: to see there are 2016 implications is a little far-fetched but if you love politics you have to look at it. when i was inside of the house chamber watching the fiscal vote, he really is a power player within the party. one of the most important things he is done since the campaign is aligned himself for speaker john boehner and a lot of people did not expect this. one of the the reasons his dumbest and i've spoken people who are close to right write is he wants to make 2013 if budget year. in order to do that he needs boehner support so i don't think ryan will actively break with boehner. >> guest: we have not
parties, no breakup, no pulling away, no clever arrangement before the election in may 2015? you will be industry working together until the day that election is called, on time and on schedule? >> let me take the second of the question first. i've always said, nick has always said, this is a full five your coalition. the public wants us, as nick has just said, to work hard on their behalf right through this parliament to fix the problems that we have inherited and to set out and deliver the long-term plans we've spoken about. for me it is absolutely five your plan, a five your parliament, a five your government. it's about work. it's about delivery, not partisanship. on the first part of your question, i hate to sort of spoil the party, but let me put it like this. we are married, not to each other. we are both happily married. this is a government, not a relationship. it's a government about delivering for people, because of the mess we are left in by the previous government, because of the huge challenges that we face. what we said to people two and half years ago was that we
to this effect. you'll remember, mr. nugent told us that if the president was re-elected, he would either be dead or in jail, but he might need to enter a psychiatric institution because he says including eric holder, the attorney general and biden in talks on gun violence was, and i'm quoting him, like hiring jeffrey dahmer to tell us how to take care of our children. >> yeah, well, these and the other comments that karen was alluding to are helpful to those of us that want some common sense legislation because it shows the extremism and the marginalization of the gun advocates, but, look, there's a new pew poll that came out that shows the public overwhelmingly in favor of not just things like assault weapons bans and the high capacity magazines and background checks but even things like gun registries. so when people ask the question will a republican congress, will a republican house be able to block these measures, it's really the wrong question. the real question is how you translate this overwhelming public opinion in favor of common sense gun laws into actionened you need three things. yo
's an assumption to put somebody in place to end that. if mitt romney was elected, did we ever accomplish what he wanted to do as a candidate? reimplement don't ask don't tell? he never really addressed that. >> right. >> if a republican president were nominating somebody with a history of chuck hagel, there's more cause for alarm but they have such a good record of gay rights. >> i understand that but democrats i think and certainly groups like hrc would be far less inclined to roll over and come around had this been a republican appointee. >> that's because -- >> that's part of it. >> but why should they trust a republican president and trust a republican nominee saying that comment 15 years ago is not reflected in the policies when the republican party has not done anything favorable to them on a policy ground? >> the gay rights question will not be the big issue in the confirmation hearings. it will be about israel and this attempt by the right to tar him as anti-really and perhaps anti-semitic. the guy voted to fund israel, voted to sanction iran and target hamas. and yet still people talk a
, joe, is there an element i will pick this fight, i won this election? i will take it to the republicans. >> he won. usual through president gets to have the cabinet he wants. this is the cabinet he wants. this goes back to the cabinet when he put hillary in there. in the first term for secretary of state. hagel told his party no on iraq and tells the president things he doesn't want to hear. the president wants that cabinet. he will get it. >> bret: joe, karl, as always, thank you. soon, we will get a labor nomination added. those hearings will begin. up next, will president obama try a political end-around congress on the debt ceiling? humans. even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qualify. see what else comes standard at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? ♪ ♪ we're lucky, it's not every day you find a companion as loyal as a subaru. love. it's
to imagine they're now going to come back and actually do something. >> if only there were a senator elected to washington -- >> who cared about the consumer. >> -- that steve rattner supported. >> i think i know where we're going. >> if only there were that person. you could just check them off. >> you know what? there is. >> steve didn't support him. >> absolutely. you are going to come around on elizabeth warren. you just are. who doesn't? elizabeth warren said this on the issue. aig's reckless bets nearly crashed our entire economy. taxpayers across this country saved aig from ruin. and it would be outrageous for this company to turn around and sue the federal government because they think the deal wasn't generous enough. steve. >> so i agree with elizabeth warren who's completely right. >> that's all i need to hear. you just made my morning. >> january 9th of the new session. >> check right there. >> it's amazing what a victory does. >> come on. >> something about 1,000 fathers and orphans. >> something like that. something like that. so i'm curious, mika. i'm reading "the new york time
autonomy lessons learned in collaboration through these public-private partnerships that elected the space station so there is all multipronged aspect that lead your plea to the bottom, not just the bottom line but the top line to what our economy does and what the jobs are being created both in michigan and all over the country. >> we have time for another question. >> i yield back my time. >> the chair now recognizes chairman smith for five minutes. >> thank you mr. chairman. let me address my first question to you. you report that there is not much support in the scientific and space community for a mission to a near earth asteroid in 2025. is such a mission absolutely necessary to help us get to mars or are there alternatives and are there alternative missions as well that can replace that mission to the asteroid? >> as we looked at the mengin to an asteroid that is in 2010 national space policy of the u.s., in addition to being widely accepted there were some shortcomings noted by some of the people that appeared before the committee. i know to -- i note as we look back over time ther
've got to say, if you look at how the republican party reacted the first time president obama was elected, i wrote a book that basically could be boiled down to don't lose your -- al roker at the white house. >> exactly. >> they didn't listen. they went out, they engaged in birtherism, they called the president a racist who hated all white people, and they went so far right and so extreme that they lost middle america. and so yeah, we lost another presidential election. look at the cover of "drudge" which i think magnificently reflects the feelings of conservatives, where the conservative movement is. and you know, he links stories that people want to see, and he does it better than anybody else. this weekend, i went on "drudge." and at the top of it is a story of survivalists. that are buying property, arming themselves and building walls out west. you have sean hannity who is talking about secession. you have another talk radio host whose name isn't even worth mentioning that is talking basically about -- about how the federal government is coming in and taking weapons, you know. there'
't going to be done until the next election or until something else changes. this is something that clearly, particularly republicans in the house really want to push. they're going to use every opportunity that they can. we managed to get some of the tax issues taken off the table at the end of last year. that was difficult for a lot of us to watch. but there's still some questions about spending. that's going to come up in the next couple of months. there's appropriations to be done. i imagine that conversation will keep on going. and i was very worried after i first came back to work after the break, because i said, well, what is this going to do for the immigration agenda? having covered this in the past, i know how much energy it takes from members. but i don't think that the members who are going to be the most involved in the fiscal cliff spending kinds of discussions are the same ones who are going to be pushing on immigration. and as long as you have someone in the senate, like majority leader harry reid, who also wants to move forward, i think you're still going to see some action
before the election this year, but did not get released until after the election for some reason, the official pentagon support on the readiness of afghan security forces says far from afghan security forces being ready to take the lead, it says out of 23 afghan army brigades, only one of those 23 brigades is capable of operating independently without support from international or u.s. troops. this is the graphic in that report that says that. brilliant graphic, right? this is how the pentagon presents data that it doesn't really want to make headlines. but i can interpret it for you. you see the 23 i've circled there? that's the number of brigades. how many brigades can operate, you see there, independent with advisers? well, oh, one. 1 of 23. even if you're bad at math, you can tell that's not good. the same report, the pentagon's own report shows after the u.s. troop surge in afghanistan, violence in that country was actually higher than it was before the surge, not lower than it was before the surge. so in what case was the surge a success? so it is a bit rich that the reason
, for just the eighth time in history no one was elected to the national baseball hall of fame this year. the baseball writers association said no to barry bonds, to roger clemons, to mark maguire and to sammy sosa. those are some of the biggest names in history but all allegedly cheated by using enhancement performing drugs. earlier pete rose, himself ban from the hall of fame for gambling, his thoughts on the shutout and the odds of him being elected. >> with the odds of the guys you mentioned, besides clemons because he was a pitcher, how about babe ruth, etc., who lost their record because of the suspicion of steroids. i have to defend roger clemons in this and the reason i have to defend him is because till this day he says he didn't take steroids and he's never flunked a drug test and he went in front of two different courts and they both ruled in favor of him. so who am i to sit here and say that roger clemons took steroids because he won some games after he was 40 years old. bonds admitted he put the steroids on him. sosa flunked the test. let's talk about bigio, piazza, jack mor
willingness elected republican governors? >> one and half million cast for democrats in congress than republicans . guess why republicans control the house because of gerrymandering. >>> and they also control house of congress but the state level people seem to be for more fiscal responsibility. >> yes, they do. you saw it in early wisconsin and scott walker faced down a recall successfully. people like success . you can see it in michigan and wisconsin and other states, yes, when they see good fiscal responsibility they respond positively. >> john, a lot of people in the state level, switching from a income tax to a sales tax, but not on the national level, they don't want to give the feds that much power? >> i toltsly disagree. i don't want the federal government to know how much i make. a national sales tax it is a way of keeping my income private and starving the government -- >> it is easy to forget that the united states was created to avoid taxes. >> last word from emac. unions to walmart. you are not welcome even in the city of 15 percent unemployment. the new union fight that

[applause] in keeping with the discussion, he is keen on innovation and things of that nature. i know that will come out. thank you, governor. >> are we all set? i am from the "mercury news," and we're here because we live in a global cloueconomy. it has altered local economies because so many manufacturing and technology jobs are moving, whether it is a matter of costs for going where the trained work force is. we're fortunate to have to governors here to talk about how that change affects their jobs and what they're doing to jump- start their economies which compete with one another. this could be fun. let me start with our guest. governor hickenlooper. i knew that was going to happen. most of us here are pretty much aware of california's budget crisis. can you give us a quick briefing on where colorado is and what you are trying to do to turn things around? >> our budget is just as dressed as almost every state in the country. we have been working tr
in the 2012 laerksz the republican party is now searching for a way to recover and beyond the election loss, there's house speaker john boehner, he's had his own problems lose ageffort to get support from his colleagues for a last ditch fiscal cliff measure. another story the tea party wing in the gop still has influence. and that sometimes causes major divisions. so is it time for the party to change? does it need to become a big tent? rich galen joins us from washington, a republican strategist. rich, i guess you could say the gop has its own bad case of the flu. what's the cure here? >> part of it is is just as with the flu for most people, wait it out. take plenty of water, go to bed and wait till you feel better. that's part of what's going to have to happen here. these things in washington tend to be cyclical. in terms of what the republicans in the house are going through, it's useful to remember, when i first came back to washington in 1996, i talked to a friend. i was working for newt gingrich. i was talking to a friend who worked for tip o'neill. i said how did tip spend his day?
in 2003 investigating the issue. now, it is possible that no one will get elected into the hall of fame and if that happens, it would only be the second time in more than four dick aid. it might even create a logjam in next year's elections. coming up we'll tell you why this shouldn't fall squarery on baseball players themselves. tara moriarty, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. >>> 7:06. sal is back now. boy, the commute is getting heavier and heavier. >> it certainly is, dave, and tori. this is the time when you start seeing the peak of this commute. you will see slow traffic all over the place. let's start off with a look at the toll plaza and the east shore, the east shore leading to the toll plaza, if will be pretty slow especially as you get past el cerrito. it slows down on the way to berkeley. it's not as bad as it could be. there is a little bit of space there in some of those lanes which is a nice surprise. maybe later in the week or maybe later in this morning is what i meant to say, it might get better after 8:00. moving along to the slow traffic on the east bay commute, all
much the president feels empowered by his second election, you know, the inauguration a couple of days away and what his read is on where the country is on this issue. we heard from gabrielle giffords and mark kelly the other day, they say they are gun owners but want to see restrictions on assault weapons and multiple clips. what is your sense for which way this is going? when. >> reporter: you know, at the beginning, soon after newtown and at the beginning of this back and forth it seemed like that could have a lot of votes in congress to move through. it seems as often has happened that sides, they go to their corners. we'll see after the vice president comes out with the tax force recommendations whether there is some coming together on some solutions. what hasn't been talked about a lot are the mental health aspects of this. or the hollywood aspect of it, and we haven't focused on it. so if there is a comprehensive approach to it, perhaps it will get more people involved. martha: as you said coming into this there are so many laws already on the books that are just not enforced, m
it would be a very interesting fight. the president is clearly coming off this election is going to push everything he can to the edge. he has no interest in negotiating. he wants to push the country as far as he can. sooner or later, the house republicans have to decide that they're going to cheerfully draw lines in the sand and the constitution gives them the power, the greatest power of the congress is the power of the purse and all they have to say is you have no money to do this. >> greta: with three co-equal branches of government, that's a given. i'm curious when can a president use an executive order and when can't he? is there a line of demarcation. >> the executive order comes to execute the law. so as long as it's -- basically the congress passes a law. the president wants to execute that law, so he issues an order saying, we're going to do the following things, but what he can't do is write a new law. >> let's take the example of gun control. if he issues an executive order where he has an idea in his mind about what gun control should be, can he issue executive order? is tha
. but with president obama re-elected, the u.s. out of iraq soon to be out of afghanistan and chuck hagel chosen for defense, that syndrome seems to be back again. >> bret: there are some in this town that the hagel nomination and all the controversy surrounding it is over hamas, the surge, it's going to get a lot of attention. perhaps it's going to take a lot of attention from the brennan nomination, do you buy that? >> i do. i think there will be a big fight over hagel. there will be confirmation hearings and suspends will he make it or will he not. i think in the end he will make it. it's unusual for the senate to engage in two major confirmations makess at the same time. >> bret: thank you. >>> concern about president obama getting a third term? it's out there. and if you thought all the drama ended at the fiscal cliff, washington may just be getting started. campbell's has 24 nes that will make it drop over, and over again. ♪ from jammin' jerk chicken, to creamy gouda bisque. see what's new from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. >>. >> bret: wall street did not pick up today wher
conference of the first term. and the first since he won re-election. we'll bring it to you live as soon as it gets underway. brit hume will join us shortly on what we can expect from the president this morning. no doubt we will hear about this as well the debate over new gun laws sending gun sales surging across the country. here is a look at the long line at a gun show, and guess writ is? just outside of san francisco. hardly hard-core gun country. lines stretching around the block, people eager to get inside that gun show. brand-new hour starts now of "america's newsroom." i'm martha maccallum. bill: i'm bill hemmer. good morning at home. that is a sight you do not expect to see. what we are seeing in san francisco is happening in many parts of the country, gun stores so busy they are finding it hard to stock shelves and reporting record sales as folks fear that new restrictions on guns and ammunition. they are scooping up what they can. >> is ammo hard to come by? >> oh, yeah, yeah,. >> why do you think that is? >> everybody is afraid that they will ban it. >> do you think people ar
in addition to six adults. he will also be asked about reshuffling his cabinet. his election of chuck hagel as defense secretary, moderate senator from nebraska, drawing fire mainly from republicans. all but negating the president's attempt to reach across the aisle. hagel has been criticized for his criticism what he calls the jewish lobby which he says has inintimidated members of congress. he is seen by be republicans being weak on iriran. the president may face complications in head of the homeland security john brennan to head the cia. he worked for the cia for 25 years. his selection to head the post not draws as much criticism as republicans see an opening to once again probe the ashes of the tragedy at the u.s. consulate in benghazi that cost the life of an american ambassador and three others. heather? heather: wendell goler in washington. thank you so much. sounds just like about everything including the kitsch -- kitchen sink in washingtoners for more let's talk with david drucker, associate politics he had tore roll call. there is great deal of thought for the news conference th

months after the election and you know, it's inevitable that it's going to be in support of the party who won the election, but look at what the obama machine is doing year round. they are articulating their message very well to all demographics and you know, they're-- they're in face-to-face contact with these people. stuart: wait a second, wait a second, wasn't it obvious in the november election, why wouldn't young people vote-- i'm trying to focus correctly here. look, you've got a rotten economy, young people in college face a lousy job market, they face overwhelming debt and yet, they vote for someone who is just focusing on social issues. why did they vote like that, why? >> the thing is, where was romney on college campuses, where was he? the conservatives keep writing off college campuses like they're a lost cause, but that's just not the case. we had a historic opportunity to win back a large chunk of the youth vote if we would have just tried, but you know, the conservatives just keep looking at college campuses and what's going on and keeps writing them off. and if young peopl
was elected for four more years. to me, this president has shown in the first four years that he's willing to go to battle for these types of things because remember when he won the first election, one of the first thing he said was "i won the election." >>steve: after george bush and george bush lost all his political capital by the time katrina hit. he was not able to use his political capital to get social security passed. that was after winning the election and beating john kerry. >>brian: what is wrong -- what are the challenging things about senator hey dell? number one, he's for without preconditions sitting down with iran. he says sections wouldn't talk. he says it is a good idea for israel to talk directly with hamas. hezbollah is an organization we should be engaged with. he went against the surge, was with president obama. this is one last time to say the bush administration and the bush policies were going the exact opposite way. senator ted cruz, one of the up and coming stars on hannity last n.i.h. >> he was reelected and at this point he thinks he can do nothing wrong. he we
minister medvedev about more flexibility after the election. well, this is flexibility manifesting itself. we're pushing everything up more quickly. moving up the time line contradicts a lot of reports we've seen about the readiness of the afghan national army, whether they will truly be prepared to secure the country both to protect the regime there but also ensure the mission we went there to execute, which is prevent al qaeda and radical islamist extremists from having a haven from which to operate, whether they'll be able to do that. that is still an open question making this announcement -- >> what are we doing now, pete? some folks say we're kind of sitting ducks in some way. is the mission going on? what is the mission? what is the end goal in your mind as a veteran? >> sure. the end goal should be to secure america's interests. this is not about building a nation for afghan. let's be clear about that. however, i don't think a rush for the exits right now is the way to do it. a gradual, measured withdrawal based on conditions where we train the afghan national army to be capable. w
, look, i think president obama in some way invited this upon himself when he said after being elected in 2008 he wanted to have a cabinet that looked like america. that statement makes this criticism, i think, somewhat justified. he himself said that this was going to be a priority. not just in a first term presumably, but also in a cirqued term. that's why you're hearing maybe more of it than you might if he had never said something like that. >> kristin welker if jack lew gets confirmed as treasury saenkt, the chief of staff will be, fill in the blank. is it dennis mcdonough or ron klain. what white man is tliblg take the chief of staff job? >> well, it depends who you ask, andrea. depending on who you ask some folks think that it is dennis mcdonough, the former deputy national security advisor. some say it's ron klain, who is, of course, the former chief of staff for joe biden. the bottom line is, my sources are telling me, that the final decision has not been made yet, but we do believe that it's been whittled down between these two men. to your point about diversity, i've been ta
